    They are not all that bad, not top of the line, but generally will do.

    They arent great, but arent bad(RST). They dont have travel adjust. The little knobs on top adjust preload, which allows you to set it slightly firmer, or softer. The thing that makes it cheap is the lack of a damper.

    They should hold up fine to that kind of riding.

    No they arn't. It's not adjustable for travel, it just makes the thing a little bit stiffer, hardly noticeable. I accidentally turned mine to tight, and the adjuster got jammed, but I can barely tell the difference anyway. Lube them up with some kind of grease and they work much much better.
